Designing a 10/10 Product

Rule #10: Do Something Worthwhile

As designers we have the skills and power to do amazing things. I think there’s never been a better time to be a designer.  And we also live in a time that has never needed so much design. 

Design’s value has being fully recognised in the world at large, and we need to make sure we don’t waste it.

Our skills are potent, and our time is precious. So we say put this to work doing something you believe in.

Now I’ll admit it, there’s been times in my career where I’ve sat back and cruised a little. I haven’t been working on anything exciting, I haven’t been really into the company that I worked for. But I look back now on this and see it as wasted time and missed opportunity. 

So here’s our call to arms. If you take one thing away from our series of blog posts it is this.

Make sure you put your potent skills to use.

Make sure you do something worthwhile too.

For us at Streamtime it is making sure the creative business’ that use our product have better visibility on how their business is performing and can thrive.

Because then a healthy agency means a healthy culture and healthy minds.

It’s about making sure that we take risks, so we can deliver real value to our users on a personal level. Make their life easier, simpler, more pleasant, more productive and more enjoyable at work.

We’re proud that Streamtime is used by some of the best creative agencies around the world, to not only enable amazing work, but to form good habits and great work life balance.

But, for us that’s not enough. We want more.

And that’s because we have a damn opinion.

We want to use Streamtime as a vehicle to make the industry a better place. So that is not only in the product we design, but in the initiatives we create and the places we choose to focus our energy.
